    Drooper, Bingo, and Fleegle are the main antagonists of The Banana Splits Movie. They were all voiced by Eric Bauza. While the characters were the main protagonists in their stand-alone TV show and the 2008 revival, sadly, the trio have been severely derailed to death to the point of becoming flat-out loathsome villains in The Banana Splits Movie.

    Why These Versions of Them Intentionally Didn't Go Bananas

    1. First and foremost, recasting iconic children's characters from family-oriented TV shows like Fleegle, Bingo, and Drooper from The Banana Splits franchise who previously portrayed protagonist roles as murderous horror movie villains is an extremely abysmal idea that was bad right from the start, which was why it upset and angered so many fans of the original show and its characters since the original versions of Fleegle, Bingo, and Drooper from The Banana Splits have been fan favorites and audiences have been rooting for them for many years, only for them to end up losing all of their charm, likability and sympathetic qualities to the point that they became universally hated once they are turned into loathsome villains, hence it insults the fanbase very hard.
      • Most importantly, the idea of Fleegle, Bingo, and Drooper from The Banana Splits being horror movie villains took a step way too far for them in a more mean-spirited and violent direction.
    2. They have been extremely derailed, as they went from silly slapstick animals who were friendly and funny to murderous serial-killing animatronics.
    3. They begin killing and murdering people after they find out that their show was canceled. Killing people just because a show is canceled doesn't mean it's a big deal.
    4. They wanted to "protect" children from anyone who wanted to get them. That's technically kidnapping.
    5. They are one of the main reasons why The Banana Splits Movie was mostly poorly received by fans of the original series.
    6. Their character designs are incredibly ugly and creepy and barely look anything like the ones from Hanna-Barbera's appearances or the 2008 appearances, looking more like Knock-offs of the Splits. Bingo has less black hair and has shoes, Fleegle is brown and doesn't have shoes, and Drooper has big eyes.
      • Their appearances get creepier as the movie goes on. Later in the movie, the right half of Fleegle's face and his right hand get their suit covering torn off, making him look like a murdering cyborg dog.
      • Let's not forget that he almost resembled the Terminator.
    7. They are very inconsistent in movement: Sometimes they move like an athletic person, and other times they move like a cheap toy robot from the dollar store.
    8. They are so poorly written that they contribute to countless inconsistencies and logic fails in their film:
      • During a taping, Bingo attacks Andy in his room, and then seconds later Bingo is seen on stage at the same time. Wasn't Bingo supposed to be in the taping at that moment?
      • Drooper could easily tear off Andy's limbs and crush Steve's jaw, but he is seen struggling with choking Beth. Childhood ruined enough yet?
      • How are Fleegle, Bingo, and Drooper able to say almost anything? It is never explained how they can say all these things not said during the taping. It also wouldn't make sense if they hired a voice actor for the Splits. If they did, then how would they mimic their voice flawlessly while saying things that the voice actor did not record?
      • As if things weren't silly enough, both Bingo and Drooper literally roar in this movie.
    9. Overall, they're a giant middle finger to their original counterparts, as well as the original Banana Splits franchise in general.

    Intentional Redeeming Qualities

    1. All three of them get major comeuppance for their killing streaks, with Fleegle getting impaled in the head by a crowbar, Drooper getting a toy-like stick stuck into his mouth to the brain-like core, and Bingo getting his head split in half by Snorky, resulting in their deaths.
    2. Snorky was the only one who wasn't with them and had none of his original personality anymore.
      • In fact, he fought Bingo to save Harley's family; unfortunately, Bingo killed him, but at least he killed Bingo before he died.
      • However, there was one bad quality about Snorky, as he attempted to run Mitch over with a Banana Buggy (though to be fair he did kinda deserve it for being a jerk).
    3. Eric Bauza did an awesome job voicing them.
    4. They were much more likable characters in the original show and have massively redeemed themselves in the HBO Max original series Jellystone!, where they become less scary and funnier just like their original Hanna-Barbera counterparts, although their roles as villains persist.
    5. Due to them being abysmally portrayed, you can hilariously laugh at how bad they are good leading a "so bad, it's good" vibe.
    6. It's pretty clear that they are meant to be hated in The Banana Splits Movie, because of their awful derailment.
